The memories are usually fuzzy, clouded by decades of other diversions or simply by the fact that, even back then, you'd already forgotten by the next day that you'd played. Once thought to be the beer pong of its time, foosball is now more hardcore than fraternity chic, more a competitive sport than simply a reason to hoist a few.

The salesman pleasantly answered my question and we hung up. Considering sluggish auto business these days, I often wonder why he never called back to ask me to visit the showroom (I have all my repairs done there), show me the new model, take me for a ride, quote a trade-in, etc. (No sales calls from auto dealers now, please, although I welcome readers' comments about what seems to be widespread sales indifference these days.

When it comes to party decorations, how can you beat a two-headed calf, shrunken heads and a real fake mummy? Then there's the ticket price of "at least one piece of folding money" requested at the door. Somehow, you're tipped off that the American Dime Museum's "Step Right Up" is no ordinary fund-raiser. But then, this is no ordinary museum -- featuring bizarre artifacts from old dime museums and carnival sideshows. Naturally, the evening's food and entertainment followed the same theme.
